The first was yet another pair of Toastie tootsies, the toe up slipper socks. We (the shop) just got a new line of yarn in, Brown Sheep's Lambs Pride, Its a fabulous wool with just a touch of mohair in it to give a glow to your knitting. Brigitte picked out the color, one I never would have chose myself. While knitting it I grew to love the color. After felting them I tried them on and debated not bringing them to the shop. Seriously. But I did size them for Brigitte, and did tell her that I would knit them for her, so I did give them to her, reluctantly. She loves them!
Secondly I knit up a purse that I wrote the pattern for. Remember the brick red and brown one form a month or so ago?! Well anyways I made a new one for the shop. I finished it just in time to go spinning on Tuesday. It came out of the washer about an hour before I left.
Spinning was so much fun. I love spinning at home, but there is just something about being with other spinners, you feel like part of a community. Although it was sort of bitter sweet. Spinning is always the first Tuesday of the month, and this was my last one. My C section is scheduled for February 5th which is a Monday. I don't think I'll be able to go for a while with a new little baby.
I can't believe how fast it's coming. Only a month left! I sure can feel it though. At the beginning of the day I'm alright but as it gets later my body starts to hurt. This little guy or girl has its feet lodged in my right rib cage and it hurts like nothing I've ever known. My other two kids did the same thing. Its like they all knew to do it... argh. hehe.
I'm going to make some hats, one boyish and one girlie for the baby to come home in. What kind of knitter would I be if I didn't make the baby something to come home in?! A nice warm little hat. I also want to get started on some mittens for the kids, thanks to Christy. I really like the pattern she linked. Its cute and looks easy. Leah gets jealous of Gabe because she doesn't have thumbs, all she has are mitts. Poor little girl. What's a mother to do....thats easy, Knit!
